|In my quest for a subtle aromatic that still tastes like quality tobacco, I finally tried Berry Good.
Don't let the name fool you. This is a very lightly cased blend that has alot of body due to the ample amount of Burley (C&D just does not make wimpy tobaccos). While it does contain a little bit of black cavendish, it really hides in the background. In fact, the blend is so lightly cased, that it really just serves to soften the Burley and gently sweeten the smoke aroma. Whether it is "berry" or not, I really cannot tell.
I would classify this a full-bodied aromatic in the tradition of years past (Burleys and VAs with a light essence). It is not a modern heavily processed sweet tobacco. Instead, this is high quality toasted Burley with a touch of sweetness to take the edge off of Burley's typical bitterness. A clean and dry burn all the way down.
So if you are a veteran pipe smoker looking for "real" tobacco flavor but otherwise want a socially acceptable blend, try this. It ranks high on my list of good aromatics.
